This is fun and found via Mundaysa’s Twitter account. For those not familiar with Twitter, it’s a microblogging service.  Still doesn’t make the sense?  Imagine text chatting the world.  As it’s gained in popularity, it’s appeared in the regular news media quite frequently.  One of the many uses people have found for Twitter is to search the “tweets” for keywords to find trends.  As an example, one of the most famous trend/keyword so far has been #IranElections

Twirus now provides a service that lets you search these trends based on language.  So far, they only have the major western European langauges, but it’s a start.  Do a search for Uni Bremen in German.  It’s a nice snippet of daily life for our students.
